Joan Retallack lecture discussing Gertrude Stein's influence on John Cage. The correlations between Stein and Cage are related to their style of writing and the avante-garde. Retallack discusses the necessity of coincidence, surprise, and crime in the world and in writing, and that real time cannot be mirrored in literature or performance. This form of writing is contrasted with conventional writing styles.
